There seems top be a persistent problem of dog fouling in the village. It has apparently become a regular issue on Side Street, which as everyone will know is well used by children going to school. We have been advised that parents are getting somewhat frustrated by these circumstances. It is important therefore to remind those who allow their dogs to foul, that not picking up the excreta is an offence. So please be courteous of others who use the pavements especially our children at Allington school.
